Recommended Ages: 7-10
Star Rating: ★★★★

This biography is from the same series as James Monroe, Teddy RooseveltAndrew Jackson, and Abe Lincoln. Through simple text and sketchy red and white illustrations, it tells the story of Pocahontas, friend of the white men.

This book does not have nearly the amount of detail that can be found either in Pocahontas [by George Sullivan] or The Story of Pocahontas, but it is not meant to. It is meant to be the very earliest of biographies given to beginning readers. It is slathered in illustrations, some of which depict Indians in minimal amounts of clothes.

Conclusion. Good – not as informative as Pocahontas.
